Seriously, I want to know. I went to a site called <links removed>. I was able to watch a couple of movies, but most of them wouldn't play; they want you to download a certain plug-in an that's a pain. Especially when you have a computer as old as my desktop. I never know if I'm infecting my computer or not. I eventually give up.
So does anyone know? Oh, I have an old Dell Dimension desktop from 2004. It has extra memory I've added but not enough ooomph for HD or even downloading Flip Video. I have to convert to MP3 with a converter.
Never heard of the site, donotfear. Just visited it. The problems you describe would be site related to my knowledge and not your computer at all. I would look elsewhere. As for the plug ins, many are not digitally certified and such, and you may be downloading something as you describe. Best to be safe.
1channel.ch is great because you can watch full movies and television shows. You can get new releases as well. Much better than hulu or other sites.
This article mentions TRULY free (for the most part), legal sources:
http://www.techverse.net/legal-websites … es-online/
Almost 100% OF FREE MOVIE SITES ARE ILLEGAL!
If you are stupid enough to add a 'plug-in,' then you have been FOOLED!
NO LEGIT SITE WILL ASK YOU TO DOWNLOAD ANY SPECIAL VIEWER OR PLUG-IN -- PERIOD! These people who say, "Oh, I have success with this ".CH" site - that is ** CHINA ** and I would NOT trust any Chinese site that allegedly allows free movie watching! Sometimes, even just 'clicking' on some of these sites is enough to cause damage; but mostly you have to at least download a plug-in or app before you truly are infected. Do NOT USE FREE MOVIE SITES! USE AT OWN RISK!
Go to Hulu.com or Sidereel.com. Don't download any plugins, those are almost always going to contain some sort of virus or spyware. Beware of any site that says you can watch new releases for free... those are all a scam or illegally uploaded movies.
I've been to Crackle and Hulu before. Of course, the movie selection is limited there. I think you guys are right....I need to be careful about those "plug-ins". However, I did watch a great movie on that site a few days ago with no problems. Seems like when I'm looking for a certain movie, it's not on Hulu or Crackle. I'll try the other site you mentioned: Sidereel.com
I found the tv show "Hell on Wheels" on the Sidereel site. That's a good sign.
Moving Image Archives is a great, truly free movie site. The movies are old and in public domain. They even have ogg video files for Linux users. http://www.archive.org/details/movies
Novamov is a good site, if you go to the directory part you can see what has recently been uploaded
It's getting difficult to find movies online. I checked out sites like http://www.watch-movies.co.uk but can't find any movies. Lots of people use bittorrent now instead to download movies rather than stream them. It's not a very complicated program to use really. There's also services like LoveFilm and NetFlix which are pretty cheap and easy to use.
I tend to avoid sites that break copyright laws.
I stick with sites like Netflicks and various TV network iPad apps to watch TV shows and movies.
Is there a good way to discover which sites are breaking copyright laws? I was under the impression that some of them had worked out arrangements with the broadcasters - at least for TV programs. I would really like to know more about this subject, because I'm very concerned about copyright laws.
I'm basically talking about current movies that aren't even out on DVD yet.
Those would be coming from Torrent sharing sites. Torrents, are a way of sharing digital info by breaking up the original into thousands of packets where no one person is sharing the entire file. The individual uses a torrent client to reassemble the torrent package in the correct order so that the digital file becomes useful. It is the least taxing way to transfer digital property over the internet and is completely legal. However, it also facilitates the illegal activity of sharing copyrighted material such as music, ebooks(kidnle, B&N, etc) and of course movies that some hack went into a movie theater and secretly recorded or ripped from a legally purchased DVD. Sites like Hulu and some of the others posted above are legally contracted with the major networks and studios and all of their content is available to the end user without fear of breaking any copyright laws.
It's still hard to find what I really want to watch, without having to contend with those plug-ins they want you to install. Then they clutter the page up with several 'play' buttons, which actually takes you to something else. I think I've pinned down the best one's, though.
Youtube and Hulu are among the handful of sites where that's legal.
Where hattie watches all her movies for free! Shh! don't tell anyone. lol
I was always told that, unless you bought it, it was illegal to download movies, or copy them. I know this from the cable company and they are watching. Never got in trouble for just watching them.
Not exactly. It's illegal for you to sell downloaded movies without a license, or for a company to host a server and let people download them even for free, like what Napster was doing back in the day. The grey area is when you download movies for free from other people who bought it. It's the lope hole that keeps all of the torrent sites going. Basically, it's no different from you letting someone borrow a movie, just they don't have to give it back.
For the original question, I spent 4 years using project free tv when I was in Japan. Quality is hit and miss sometimes, but it's 100% free so can't really complain.
I steer clear of those "watch free online movies" sites because most of 'em are shady and will likely pollute your PC with funky viruses 'n' stuff.
However, I've found quite a few goodies on YouTube recently. In the past, uploaders who posted feature films there had to divvy them up into 8 or 10 ten-minute "segments" due to YouTube's time limits on video clips, which of course was a pain in the ass. However, they must've changed their rules because now there are many feature length films offered in their entirety, so you don't have to go clicking to the next "chapter" every few minutes.
It helps if you have a taste for trashy movies like I do, because I'm talking about vintage B-grade stuff like "Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence," "Saturn 3" with Farrah Fawcett, "Battle Beyond the Stars" with Richard Thomas, the "Super Mario Brothers" movie, and the 1980 creature feature classic "Alligator."
In other words... don't go looking for the latest box office smashes or Oscar winners..
You Tube for some, movie2k.to for others............. but you didn't hear it from me ;-)
I tried movies2k a while back -- as I watched, it siliently downloaded some viruses as well as tracking cookies and spyware. I avoid it like the plague now!!
Megashare is another site, but quality can be hit and miss.
As for consistency in quality, it's Netflix for us. Cheap, legal and HD.
I'll check out the other recommended sites.
If you happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you will be overwhelmed at all that is available and is not a scam. I have saved much more in shipping than the Prime Membership costs me annually. Plus, I get a ton of free ebooks for my Kindle. There is lots out there from Amazon, as a Prime Member. Consider buying things like toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags and such in large quantities....and save money with two day free shipping to your door.
Hulu, Vudu, Crackle, YouTube (for the most part - some of theirs is illegal as well), Amazon prime video and Netflix -- those are some decent sites that have 'some' free movies -- or movies included as part of their paid subscriptions. Go to "http://canistream.it" and you can look up LEGIT sites where you can stream almost any movie -- it will tell you if the movie is available on Netflix, Amazon, etc.
There is NO SUCH THING AS A "LEGAL FREE" MOVIE SITE! Some sites that are in foreign countries (such as the ".CH" [Chinese] site that was mentioned] can skirt the law, because they are outside of U.S. jurisdiction, but that does NOT make what they do "legal!" Sidereel may be legal, I'm not sure. That's my 2 cents' worth.
AND just because "Oh, I watched a movie on [some] FREE site a week ago, and didn't have any problems" -- that's called "DELAYED SPYWARE" - that's the *BEST* spyware! You will watch a movie and not notice anything for a week, a month or, worst case, you NEVER will notice anything while they quietly steal your info, identity, bank accounts, etc.! So, good luck in believing some of these "fan boys" who say "Oh, I use this site all the time, and it's great." Yeah... keep on drinking the Kool-Aid!
I see this thread is over 4 years old. However...
Netflix is less than $10/month. Then there's Hulu. So why even risk bothering with the free sites these days?
i think you forgot to add one more site to this list. which site allows user to watch movie in any language(dubbed).
that is:- kino-streaming .online (pls remove the spaces)
